John Fabina’s Michigan Upper Peninsula Kayak Fishing Trip Report

John’s report from his inspiring kayak fishing trip in Michigan Upper Peninsula:

-“I spent time on two rivers in two days. Fishing started slow the first day but picked up the second day. The W made it possible for me to take a small entrance off the main river and find a beaver lodge. There was a nice deep hole by the lodge. I caught quite a variety in this honey hole. Smallmouth bass, perch, northern pike, and my first walleye landed on the W which was 18″. I lost one the same size the day before alongside the boat, I forgot my landing net. I was also able to sneak up on a deer, and snap a photo. My W truly made this an enjoyable and successful trip.”

-“When I returned from my fishing trip Jeanne’s new W300 had arrived. Thanks for the extras. She is very much looking forward to getting on the water.More photos to come of Jeanne’s new W,
John”

    Nice job landing those beauties.

    I really like your tape measure……..Now why didn’t I think about that?

    See that, every W Owner’s ideas, can be an answer to another
    W’s owners questions.
